Court Rules for Patient in Medical Privacy Suit

A woman who was awarded $100,000 in compensation for a violation of her medical privacy will get a chance to seek more money, the 8th Circuit ruled.

Jane Doe sued three doctors over a newspaper article about the doctors which contained information that violated her medical privacy

Her suit resulted in an award of $100,000 but her follow up suit claimed that the court erred in excluding testimony that would have resulted on a larger judgement.

In a split decision this week, a three-judge panel of the 8th Circuit agreed with Doe.
